CRANIAL IMPLANT ¹ 

3D-SKULL

 

The device is a patient specific mold that can create a patient specific cranial implant from polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA, bone cement) during surgery.

Latest technologies are used for the design (AI-based segmentation & unique platform for the surgeon) and production (high accuracy 3D printer) of this device allowing short leadtime. 

Based on the CT-scan of the patient, the mold is manufactured and delivered to the hospital for final sterilization. By setting PMMA in the mold, an implant is created in the OR. In just a few minutes the implant is ready to be fixated in the patient.

  • Perfect fit 

  • One step resection and reconstruction

  • Cost effectiveness

  • Excellent long term results thanks to the gentamycin

LATERAL RESECTION PRIOR TO FRONTAL RECONSTRUCTION

 

  • Surgery date : November 2016

  • Surgeon : Dr Reuter

  • Hospital : CHU Liège

 

A lateral resection is required prior to the frontal reconstruction to obtain an
appropriate facial harmony. 3D-Side plans the resection and reconstruction and provides the
adequate tools.
